Image Description

The moon hides half of her pink face behind a green horned crescent mask. She is surrounded by two radiating black, red, gold, and green disks in the upper corners and three black six-pointed stars in the sky. Two Harlequins stand below and look up at her with astronomical instruments. The Harlequin on the left holds up a compass with his left hand and in his right hand he holds a blue starry globe encircled by a gold serpent biting its own tail. The Harlequin on the right points up with his right hand and holds an angled ruler in his left hand.
